Petraeus and Crocker Face Hume Humiliation (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Gen. Petraeus and Crocker on Fox
(Not exactly the school of hard knocks)
Where they weave and they spin
And avow “We must win,”
While Brit Hume bows and kisses their socks.



Republican Shenanigans

Karl Rove Update


The congressional investigation into whether former Gov. Don Siegelman was prosecuted for political reasons advanced Thursday when an Alabama woman at the heart of the case agreed to be interviewed privately and under oath next week in Washington.

Rainsville Jill Simpson will answer questions from two staff members of the House Judiciary Committee next Friday, according to her attorney, Priscilla Duncan.

Simpson's written statement in May that she overheard Alabama Republicans in 2002 discuss White House knowledge of a federal investigation into Siegelman's administration prompted Democrats to question whether the case had been orchestrated by Republicans with political motives...In the statement, Simpson said that Bill Canary, a Republican adviser to Gov. Bob Riley, told Riley's son in a phone call that Siegelman would not be a political problem. Canary's wife is Leura Canary, the U.S. attorney in Montgomery whose staff handled the Siegelman investigation.

"William `Bill' Canary told him not to worry, that he had already gotten it worked out with Karl and Karl had spoken with the Department of Justice and the Department of Justice was already pursuing Don Siegelman," Simpson said in her affidavit. She said the reference was to President Bush's close political, adviser Karl Rove.
